Bye-bye Bolly Knickers!

The last episode in the first series of Ashes to Ashes aired last night, and it was a good one. I'd thought perhaps Evan would turn out to be the bad guy, but it was someone I'd never even considered. I can't wait to see what happens next season -- I grew to like DCI Gene Hunt in Life on Mars, but I came to adore him in this new series. Now what will I do on a Thursday evening?

The pilot episode for The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency impressed me enormously, and again, I can't wait for next year to see more.

The trailers for the new Doctor Who have persuaded me that this next series may be worth watching again. I'm certainly going to give it a chance.

Ah, but that was what gave it away! I call it 'the Dick Francis Principle' because it is always the person who is briefly mentioned at the beginning but is never seen again until they are revealed as the murderer. I got quite good at spotting them during my brief stint as a Dick Francis reader.

Very good!

For me though, after 2 series of LoM and one of a2A, the question remains: are the Gene Genie and his team imaginary constructs, or...?

i want Gene to be at the centre of it all.

Gene as the prime mover? I'd go with that!

Consciously or, more intriguingly, unconsciously. Either would do.

...and obviously, as they're only characters in a television series, they are. Do'h!

Oh the layers of meaning.
